Overview

As a shooting range owner or operator, you and your business are exposed to a number of liabilities. In order to avoid the risks associated with these liabilities, it's crucial that you and your staff are educated, prepared and proactive when it comes to effectively managing your business from a health and environmental standpoint. Failure to comply with the regulations applicable to your range business exposes you to significant fines and penalties, cleanup costs and potential criminal prosecution. All of this can potentially put you out of business. If you are looking to ensure that your business practices are in regulatory compliance while determining ways to improve your management practices, this workshop is for you. Our team of experts have hands on experience in the fields of environmental law related to shooting ranges, OSHA compliance and inspection, and overall range maintenance. They are here to educate and guide you. Their years of experience will open your eyes to what can happen and provide you with recommended compliance strategies to protect your business for many years to come.
